Welcome to the Peace & Violence Research Lab!

We are pleased to announce the formation of the Peace and Violence Research Lab (PVRL). The purpose of the lab is to support undergraduate and graduate research on topics related to peace and political violence.

We are seeking applications from motivated undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in conducting scholarly research under the mentorship of a faculty researcher.

Become a Fellow

As a fellow in the lab, you will work with a faculty mentor whose interest matches your own. You will have the chance to develop your own research project, present the research at conferences, and collaborate closely with faculty. There will be research workshops and meetings throughout the year to gain research skills and feedback on your project.

All fellows will receive $2,000 to pursue their research project. There are four slots for undergraduates and four for graduate students. Please email your completed applications to Thomas Zeitzoff with the subject line PVRL APPLICATION, no later than October 1st. We will then contact the final candidates for interviews. If you have any questions about the PVRL or the application process, please email
